Daily Devotional Rev. Johnnie Flakes,III - June 02, 2009
Our devotion for today comes from Psalm 139:14 "I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Marvelous are thy works, and that my soul knowth right well."
Wherever you are today, meditate on this; Daniel Webster's eldest daughter was married to John Colby, considered to be one of the most wicked, godless men in his neighborhood when it came to impious behavior. He seemed to have no respect for God and often used His name in a derisive manner. Then Webster heard that Colby had undergone a change. He decided to call on him to see for himself.
On entering his daughter's home, he noticed a large print Bible opened on a table. Colby had been reading it before he answered Webster's knock on the door. The first question Colby asked was, "Are you a Christian?" When he was assured of Webster's faith, he suggested that they kneel together and pray.
After the visit, Webster told a friend, "Here was a man as unlikely to be a Christian as any I have ever seen; and he has gone his godless way until now, with old age and habits hard to change! Yet now he is a penitent, trusting, humble believer!"
God never gave up on John Colby. You are precious to God. The Bible says that He knew you and loved you long before you were even aware of Him. No matter how you have treated Him in the past, He has never given up on you. Ask Him and find out for yourself.
Have a blessed asking day!
